The pair recently appeared to have chemistry as David confided in Priya by revealing the truth about his sham wedding.
David tied the knot with Alicia Gallagher earlier in the summer, but only to ensure that he could have custody of her adopted son Jacob during her time in jail.
Wolfenden told Inside Soap of David's future: "He's still playing daddy to Jacob, but he's also set to develop a soft spot for Priya. They're going to go off for secret snogs in the woods!"
Meanwhile, with Emmerdale gearing up for its 40th anniversary in October, Wolfenden explained that his real-life fiancé Charley Webb (Debbie Dingle) will have a huge role to play in the live episode.
He said: "I'm one of the lucky ones, because I'm not doing too much! But Charley is doing an awful lot. She's got one of the biggest parts in it."
